The Midwife (2017 France) 117 mins, Cert. 12A – subtitled

Screenings at 2.30 & 7.30

Director: Martin Provost
Stars: Catherine Deneuve, Catherine Frot, Olivier Gourmet


Tense midwife Claire (Frot) finds her settled routine turned upside down when her late father’s free-spirited ex-mistress Béatrice (Deneuve) turns up on her doorstep out of the blue.

Claire is furious when someone she has pigeonholed as a homewrecker asks for her help with money and health problems, yet the possibility emerges of a bond between these two very different women and a new start for Claire.

Both lead actresses shine, with Deneuve “vivid and supercharged” (The Telegraph).
